Un Hermanito para Gretchen

In case you haven't noticed the additional photo album on the righthand side of this blog - the word is out - we're adding another Gill to the mix!

We are now 19 weeks into a second pregnancy in Argentina and so far, things have progressed smoothly and without incident.  Just like with our pregnancy with Gretchen, we had our first 3D ultrasound appointment right at 12 weeks.  Unlike our pregnancy with Gretchen, we were told that this baby is, in fact, a BOY!

We have since had a second 3D ultrasound that confirms the baby's sex, so... we are preparing to be the parents of big sister Gretchen and a-yet-unnamed-little baby brother.  It is, indeed, a very exciting time in our household.

Gretchen seems to be on board with the whole situation, she pats my belly (or smacks, depending on her energy level) and says "baby", though she has also been very attached to her mama these last few months.  She is a great helper, reinforced by her favorite phrase lately: "I help!"  We're crossing our fingers that this phase continues through to when the baby arrives.

Of course, being that she is such a sweetheart, we're excited about making her a big sister.

Doesn't she just scream adorableness? These raised eyebrows and earnest face just make my heart melt!

We can't wait for our family to grow - and for all of those reading in Argentina, we'll keep you posted on how the processes have changed over the last 2 years.  As with most things in this country, the birth and paperwork process is sure to have changed dramatically!
